Author and antiques expert, Terry Kovel, will be auctioning antiques and collectibles to help raise funds for public television in Cleveland and Kovels.com will link to streaming “Auction Action.” The WVIZ/PBS Televised Auction is an exciting live TV event, starting Thursday, April 23 and continuing through Sunday, April 26. Terry, a longtime supporter of WVIZ, will be auctioning antiques and collectibles from the practical to the priceless on the air at the “X Table” Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
Viewers can enjoy the thrill of live bidding—online or by phone—on thousands of items, everything from antiques and art to wine, restaurant and grocery gift certificates, tickets to theater and sporting events, and "priceless" items like a once-in-a-lifetime dinner featuring incredible wines. Also up for bid this year will be trips to Europe and Las Vegas, a Hoosier cabinet, Salvador Dali print and special autographed sports memorabilia.
Outstanding donations of antiques and collectibles include a cane made from the vertebrae of a shark, a collector’s cabinet with narrow drawers, vintage iron plant stands, a pair of Chippendale style corner cabinets, a child’s desk and a model ship. Also look out for garden furniture, dining room sets in Chippendale and midcentury modern styles, flow blue china, Holt-Howard and trunks as well as vintage toys, dolls and lots of dishes and glass. Everything is sold without reserve.
Viewers can preview auction items or register to bid online or by phone by going to the WVIZ website, http://www.Ideastream.org/Auction. There are always bargains and great surprises, as well as the unexpected, so join the fun – and see Terry Kovel – on April 23, 24, 25 and 26.
